5. What tablets or devices work with your SIM-only product?

Warning - Will the SIM you buy for your SIM-only plan fit into your device?
There is little worse than buying something that doesn’t fit, whether it’s jeans, bed linen or a SIM. This is why we strongly suggest that you check out the instructions or specifications of your device and you don't just guess.

Much like jeans or bed linen, you cannot easily cut your SIM to fit. If you do and it all goes wrong, there is little chance that your tablet or device supplier will fix it for you and it is most likely you will have invalidated your warranty.

Here is a list of popular tablets and devices and the corresponding SIM size we believe will work with that device.  Again, it is very important that you check with your manufacturer as to which SIM size will be appropriate for you.  Manufacturers can change their specification without warning or notice and therefore we cannot guarantee that the information below is current or accurate, and neither can we take any responsibility for the information provided below.
